More than 170 classes, workshops, and tours, including several new
offerings, will be part of SMC Community Education’s upcoming spring
Online registration opened Monday with classes beginning Feb. 18.
Registration is still open for the current winter semester that also
began Monday with more than 60 classes, workshops, and tours.
Alice Meyering, Program Coordinator of Community & Contract Education, said there was a class for every interest.
“From art to Zumba, we’ll help keep your body, mind, and creative expression healthy and challenged,” Meyering said.
Meyering said the program is particularly pleased to offer a new day
tour to Pasadena city and tea lunch in the spring – as well as
“Prevailing Wage: Tips You Need Before You Bid.”
That debuts the series on “Secrets of Public Works Projects,”
designed to prepare contractors to successfully bid on public works.
“Prevailing Wage” begins this Saturday, Jan. 11.
In addition, she said, the program is grouping together some of its
course offerings into series of classes, including the “Organic Living
Series,” composed of “Organic Gardening” and “Healthy Living,” as well
as “Jumpstart Your Career Series,” which would enhance any
career-searching effort with “Social Media for Job Seekers” and “MS Word
and MS Excel for the Job Market.”
Other new classes this spring include “Landscape Painting,” “Resin
Jewelry,” “Cookie Bouquets,” and “Yin Yoga.” And looking ahead to the
summer, Community Education is offering several new summer camps for
youth ages 12 to 17 that are available for online registration that
began Jan. 6.
“And if that weren’t enough, we will have an extensive collection of
Professional Development classes in spring,” Meyering said. These
courses are in many disciplines, including business and finance, health
professions, social work, entrepreneurship, and more.
Particularly notable are the real estate courses, which will pave the
way for a successful career in the red-hot Southern California housing
market, she said
